Home Forums Other Controling line breaks in headings Reply To: Controling line breaks in headings


I’m not talking about mile-long headings. I just want normal titles to break where I want them to, instead of arbitrarily, when viewed on a small screen (e.g. smartphone). For, example I would prefer the the title of this thread to break in one of these places: Controling | line breaks | in headings

I’m a bit worried, too, about white-space: nowrap breaking layout, at least when used with longer words, that’s why I’m asking if there’s a good solution available.
Something like <wbr> would be ideal if only it wasn’t just for breaking words.

And, Wayne, I don’t understand what padding has to do with it.
